Next March 20th is the next Solar eclipse,(visible in the UK) would it not be cool if we could get as many Pentax users as possible to take pictures at the same time where ever they are and put them all together in one gallery as our own Pentax Snapshot in time.
I am think more pictures of Solar watchers than the eclipse itself.
Plenty of time to plan something just thought I would put it out there as a big community project we could set up.

Sorry to put a dampener on it but...
"The path of totality is from just below the Greenland peninsula, heading north into the Arctic Circle, a course that takes it across the Russian island of Svalbard and also the Faero Islands, for a full 2 minutes 9 seconds of total solar eclipse."
Apparently you can get a boat from Newcastle that will take you there in time for it, guaranteed it'll be cloudy!

....but the partial will be visible from the UK, so it could be a runner.

Yes sorry I should have said that it would be partial for most of us. Just think it could create an interesting album.
